Interview with Sister Anabela Carneiro
Our General Superior and member of the UISG Board of Directors, Sister Anabela Carneiro, comments in this interview with Vatican News about the purpose of this joint prayer initiative.
“It is an initiative in communion with all the other actions that have been carried out and that are still carried out today in the Church, and in the whole world, with the aim of asking for help for the people who suffer as a consequence of this pandemic. In particular, we have proposed joining the United States and the countries of Latin America, which are currently suffering the consequences of this pandemic with such force. ”
